Jörn Eiben, who has served as an H-Sport Editor for two years, will be stepping down at the end of 2015. The H-Sport Advisory Board and Editorial Team thank Jörn for his dedicated service to H-Sport.
With Jörn’s departure, H-Sport seeks to expand its team of volunteers to serve as editors for the network.
What does being an H-Sport Editor entail?
Service Time Demand: When “on-duty” a list editor performs a few brief daily visits (often less than 5 minutes) moderating discussion posts for circulation and completing a couple of other simple administrative tasks.
We rotate the “on-duty” status; editors typically are “on” for two-weeks, and then “off” for six-weeks. The H-Sport Editor Team easily accommodates the demands of individual schedules and professional obligations.

Nomination and Training Process: List editors agree to serve a two-year renewable term, must be nominated by the H-Sport Advisory Board, certified by the H-Net Council, and trained to use the H-Net commons. (It’s a lot less scary than it sounds.)
Qualifications: at least two years of graduate school, a graduate degree, or equivalent in professional experience in the sport humanities, broadly defined. Publications and teaching experience are a plus. General facility with email, browsers and office software is helpful.
